Product Details

CENTIPEDE Sod is considered a low-maintenance warm season grass and can be an alternative to Bermuda or Zoysia. Centipede is more shade tolerant than Bermuda but not as much as Zoysia. The aesthetics of Centipede are usually considered less than that of Bermuda and Zoysia. When dormant Centipede will have burnt red color which is less attractive than Zoysia or Bermuda. The benefits are its ability to adapt too many soil types and has little need for fertilizer or pesticides. Centipede lawns are good for property owners that want very little maintenance and are not as concerned with competing neighbors.

Light Requirements: Centipede Sod has moderate to good shade tolerance but grows best in full sun. It can tolerate as little as 6 hours of sun per day.

Irrigation: Not as drought tolerant as other grasses. To maintain a healthy appearance during the hottest months of summer, Centipede needs about 1 to 1 1/4 inches of water a week. On sandy soils it often requires more frequent watering, for example, 1/2 inch of water every third day. A light green-grey color and narrowing of leaves indicate that it is time to water.


  • Hot Weather Tolerance : Excellent
  • Sun Requirement : 6 hours (Good)
  • Wear Resistance : Excellent
  • Injury Recovery : Good
  • Winter Color : Dormant
  • Mowing Height : 3″ – 4″

Wow! Best experience ever! Everything about this project was impeccable, from the initial consultation through the quotes through the actual install. I had ~6,000 ft2 of zoysia sod installed and the professionalism of the staff and crew really impressed me. The attention to detail and clear interest in assurance that I as the customer was happy both during and at completion of the project was evident. I would strongly recommend this supplier and will definitely be calling them back later to upgrade other areas of my yard.

The team at Atlanta Sod did a great job on my yard. They arrived on time and were incredible professional. I made some big changes during the implementation that required additional soil and they quickly procured the required resources and delivered on time. The Project Lead was courteous and very professional he communicated the process and kept me abreast of the project. I would highly recommend them to any of my friends.
